Road to 19:
Alumni Giving Challenge
357 total alumni gifts,
1 historic day.
JANUARY 19, 2017
On January 19, the Calhoun alumni community was challenged to raise 219 gifts in just 19 hours in order to unlock $250,000 for Calhoun. Alumni raced through this challenge, reaching 219 gifts with eight hours to spare!
In response to this incredible turnout, another generous alum stepped forward and announced that he would match gifts, dollar-for-dollar, beginning with the 220th gift, helping us keep the momentum going.
The total number of gifts received in the Road to 19 Challenge reached 357, resulting in $285,798 for our school! All of us at Calhoun--students, faculty, parents, and staff--are so grateful for this outpouring of philanthropy. We are so proud of our alumni and their collective success. Thank you all so much for making this record-breaking day possible!
19 is a lucky number for Calhoun this year! Our Head of School is retiring after 19 transformative years, and all gifts made in our Road to 19 Alumni Challenge will count toward the 2016-17 Annual Fund and be included in the "19 for 19 Campaign for Calhoun" – raising $19 million to continue Calhoun's momentum in support of tuition assistance, teacher salaries, programming and more.
